I use pen/pencil grips on my aluminum hooks. I was lucky enough to get several Boye Comfort Grip Hooks (clear red plastic over the end of steel hooks) on Ebay. Been knitting lately since I finished the crochet slippers and bag and my forearm was bothering me from the twisting motion. It helps a lot if I alternate between crochet and knit projects.
When my wrist is really bothering me, I use an elastic wrist wrap/support. Have had wrist issues for a long time...sometimes so bad that I can't move my arm at all without pain. Then it's a couple weeks of no lifting, pushing, or pulling and treatment with ice packs and motrin.
Always a beginner...sometimes I even finish.
Every project is a new beginning.
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease
